Real Girl

Jun 26, 2018

Warning this Review May Contain Spoilers - From the studio who blessed us with titles such as Rescue Me!, comes one of the blandest romance anime out there. Featuring a generic storyline, cardboard cutout characters and the worse consistency with animation I've seen for a while (which has been a while due to the lack of me watching things lately). So it's been a while since I last wrote a review, so I'm a little rusty but here we go.
STORY
To start, the plot has a major flaw, it's boring. It follows a generic style and just drags out each scenario which causes it to be easy predicted. There's... See full review

Mysterious Girlfriend X

Dec 24, 2017

Warning this review may contain spoilers- So this anime is weird, that's for sure but it is a good weird that investigates the strange side of a relationship that you don't normally get to see in a lot of high school romance anime. This anime was like a breath of fresh air where the premise is good and I ended it on not regretting picking this up.  STORY The story is minimal and tends to just follow the lives of our unlikely couple, being a character heavy show you can see how much it depends on the personalities of these characters. The events that happened are dependant on the events are how... See full review

Battery

Warning this Review May Contain Spoilers –
Oh dear, what a train wreck this turned out to be. So the NoitamaA time slot has brought us a sports show about baseball whilst also taking in some darker issues surrounding rivalries and the main protagonist who is just completely unpleasant to anyone he even interacts with, which then leads to melodramatic issues and creating a problem where eventually the whole team ends up being unlikeable. To me, this show tried its best to be things such as Haikyuu or Free by adding all the over the top drama around a specific sport but crashed into something that... See full review

Bunny Drop

Sep 6, 2017

Warning this Review May Contain Spoilers –
I have a weakness to anything that involves a good slice of life story, it never bothers me that they are slow and drag out a bit much because I know that is what they are supposed to do, with little progression. I believe this describes ‘Usagi Drop’ quite well, as it is a slow plod through a story with pretty much no story progression but focus’ more on the character driven aspects. This show was just all the cuteness you need to one bundle from the interactions between characters to the heartfelt moments. (Please note that at the time... See full review

Your lie in April

Sep 3, 2017

Warning this Review May Contain Spoilers- So this was an anime I have been meaning to pick up for a while, just because I have heard so much about it. Both good and bad, but my personal opinion on it sits somewhere in the middle. This show for me was neither good or bad but rather average, well just over. I have a weak spot for slightly Cliche shows and any shows that involve a load of music so this show is exactly that. Now onto the actual review. STORY The story itself is quite repetitive, where Kousei ends up having a mental breakdown while playing but somehow gets pulled back. This happened every few... See full review

Mushishi: Hihamukage

Jun 19, 2017

Warning this Review May Contain Spoilers- Oh, Mushishi, one of the anime that stand above the rest in the slow and steady category. This special was no different, taking what we love from the series and putting it into the form of an anime, this allows people who haven't seen the original anime to experience the feeling you get from the Mushishi anime.  STORY The story of the special was extremely detailed and focused a lot of human relationships and the emotional value between each. It helps us understand the pain of being kept indoors and the struggle to get through everyday life, this special... See full review

Miss Monochrome

Jun 15, 2017

Warning this review may contain spoilers -  A light series following a girl who wants to be an idol, the only problem is she is a robot and isn't the smartest. Miss Monochrome is a unique character who is more than oblivious to the world surrounding her. This is a short anime so don't expect much, because this anime is lacking substance other than the animation and the sound.  STORY There is no story, we see this extremely often in these sorts of programmes but causes the series it lack in a serious section. Although I understand that short anime cannot produce a lot of story due to the short... See full review

Nothing can go wrong with that style of show and it definatly won't become boring after a while...absolutely not. Anyway I'll be serious now, this is another one of them shows that are passable but the trope is slowly getting boring but despite all this I ended up watching it. Here we have Urara Meirochou where all the moe girls grow and try to become the greatest fortune teller...ever.  STORY The story is what you would expect, the... See full review

Hagane Orchestra

Jan 14, 2017

Warning this review may contain spoilers- Okay so I'll start off with being honest, this was terrible. My only motivation to watch it was the fact that one of my favourite vocaloids was appearing in episode 8 but in a way it surprised me. It lived up to it's purpose, to promote a mobile game and there isn't to complain about there, the things it did wrong was pretty much everything else. Including quite bland characters, basic animation and a story that was far from making sense. STORY So it is clear that this kind of series wasn't supposed to contain any story worth-while for any type of audience, it... See full review

Warning this review may contain spoilers- So this is another Spring 2016 review. This here is another cute girls do cute things anime but it is worth checking out, this has to be one of my favourites of this season and it would be pretty stupid if I didn’t try and explain why I think this is much more than just another moe show that is just a copycat of others. STORY The pacing was spot on, at no point did I ever feel bored or was wondering whether I should carry on this series due to pacing. The story didn’t really have a structure other than it was in chronological order throughout a year... See full review

Bungou Stray Dogs

Jul 10, 2016

Warning this Review may contain spoilers xx So another review for the spring 2016 anime, this time for a pretty popular show known as Bungou Stray Dogs. It follows the story of Atsushi who gets caught up in the world of the supernatural and ends up joining an agency based on his own certain supernatural power that is explained in episode 1, if you like Blood Bloodade Battlefront then this is pretty much the same thing (But BBB does it quite a bit better). The main thing wrong with this series is the story layout and pacing which will be explained in this review, enjoy xx STORY It was rushed and muddled... See full review

My Hero Academia

Jun 27, 2016

Warning this Review May Contain Spoilers- *Sigh* This series doesn't deserve the amount of hate it gets for being a superhero anime, I just want to say that yeah this is another superhero anime but it is still good, please don't get put off because of the theme as it is really good. And I've also had enough of people saying it's a rip-off of this series or that series, I enjoyed it and I think it is worth it. So this is about a world where everyone has superpowers (known as quirks) but our main character is part of the small percentage that doesn't but still wants to become a hero. He's constantly bullied... See full review

Warning this Review May Contain Spoilers- Time for a Spring 2016 anime review and really this was one of the most underrated series of the season, yeah at first you are probably under the impression that this is another cute girls do stuff and that is pretty much what it is but it is worth watching. So it follows a group of girls who are really unlucky doing things that is suppsed to improve their karma but it doesn't really go to plan. STORY The story is simple but fun to watch, there were some episodes that were stronger in story compared to others but each have a unique feel to them. Like I said most... See full review

Warning this Review may contain spoilers- Who knew that I would rate a short series above average (5 being average for me XD) but honestly this series made me laugh at how stupid it was, this was a short show about different blood types being faced with tasks and how each react. Sadly I couldn't relate to any because I couldn't remember my blood type...but to be honest I could be any of them XD STORY The story was limited, however it was good. People may see this as a series with only 2 minute episodes and would be instantly put off but if you like short comedies then this would be a good one to try. I... See full review

She and Her Cat: Everything Flows

Apr 10, 2016

Warning this Review May Contain Spoilers Ah, this anime made me want to cry like a little girl again but anyway this is my review for She and Her Cat: Everything Flows. It follows the story of Girl and Daru (her cat) in their little life together, through thick and thing, apparently this is based off a 5 minute short anime which I need to check out soon :3 STORY The story is limited, due to it still being a short anime but this had so much character development for the girl and the fact it is in Daru's view makes it so unique and honestly I really enjoyed it. However if I were to go into any more details... See full review

This was definitely a show that everyone wouldn't shut up about and honestly I can see why they wouldn't, to me it was good but not my type of anime. STORY The story was good, the pacing was good up until the end and it overall was very consistant in what it was producing. It was only the ending for me that got me a bit disappointed, and I know that is how the manga ended and to some people it was the best way to conclude the... See full review

So this really is just a bit of fun from the start, guy dies in stupid way and ends up in a fantasy world where it's all like an MMO as a way of him being reborn. STORY Even though it relied quite heavily on short jokes the story wasn't bad for a 10 episode anime, and I do suspect that quite a bit was missed out... See full review

It follows the story of Yuzuka who becomes a magical girl and so on, she doesn't like it and her 'magical girl outfit' turns out to be just a swimsuit, interesting. Well I was disappointed, even though there isn't anything I feel like I can recommend to this, it was just boring and felt like a drag.

Honestly this wasn't bad but it wasn't much more than average, enjoyable but still was missing some elements which are quite important such as it has a slow start which would put people off. Anyway this is my review of Grimgar of Fantasy and Ash, enjoy xx STORY The story I have touched apon already but I want to say it again, there were a few pacing problems for me. Up until about episode 4 it's quite repetitive and slow which to some... See full review

Warning this may contain spoilers- Who doesn't like a traditional fairy tale, well this movie is based on the well known story of the little mermaid by Hans Christian Andersen and yeah it may not be like the Disney version so many people have grown to love there were some good aspects of it. STORY Yeah the basic story is just like the original, our female mermaid falls in love with the prince of the story and she has to sacrifice something so she can be with him. I thought it was quite well paced overall but did get a bit slow in the middle which would of put some people off, and it didn't help that the... See full review

It was just so short and it felt like it could of done with being a longer or just being a longer series. STORY It was a basic romance school story, but it was all over with so quickly it was just ehhhh.It was kind of all over the place and just seemed off. Luckily it still had a story hence why I didn't give it a completely terrible score, it's  watchable. ANIMATION It was fitting, for the style of anime... See full review

It is a basic story which would be perfect as a short anime however it did seem a bit rushed at certain points... See full review

This anime was an Anime Mirai projec and it was really good, it is a short that anyone can watch and hopefully enjoy. STORY I can't lie, the start  was pretty slow and started to get boring, it wasn't until around 10 minutes in that things started picking up. The story was sweet when it got into it with aspects of romance as well as drama all coming back to the idea of lamps. Who could of thought that lamps could play... See full review

STORY The story was alright, it was cute and short with not too much depth  but it wasn't boring, there was a bit for everyone and the story we knew all too good from the main series still had a part.  The comedy in the show may only be short little gags but it didn't really have too...
